How to Fill out Form HA-4631 in Washington, D.C.
If you’ve been denied Social Security Disability benefits, you’re not alone.
Most people get denied the first time they apply. You should consider appealing the decision. An important part of appealing is filling out Form HA-4631, which is called “Claimant’s Recent Medical Treatment.”
Don’t wait to appeal, because the Social Security Administration (SSA) has a deadline for appeals and could make you start your application again if you’re too late.
To appeal your denial, you’ll have two other forms you need to submit before you complete Form HA-4631.
Also, fill out Form SSA-3441-BK: “Disability Report – Appeal.”
Once you’re finished with those, you’ll next be asked to fill out Form HA-4631.
You must submit the form before the SSA’s deadline, or you risk having to start over from the beginning with your application.
You can fill out the form online, or fill out and return a paper form.
